Bid/No Bid Decision Tool

Small businesses only*

If you are a small business struggling with the bid/no-bid decision for Navy’s SeaPort-e, the following tool should make the process more straight-forward.

Because SeaPort-e is a mandatory contract vehicle for some services, the decisions are based on the types of services you provide, the customers you want to target, and your capabilities to prime. 

First, you will need to review the 22 functional areas here. (The page will open in a new window. Leave the window open for reference.) 

Next, determine the geographical Zone(s) in which your target customers are located.

*If your business is large, you will have to qualify in 18-22 of the functional areas to achieve an "outstanding" evaluation. 

If after carefully considering each decision point, you have determined you should bid the next rolling admissions as a prime, your next steps are here.

If you determined you should team up as a sub, you can find a list of potential team-mates here.

I hope you have found this bid/no-bid decision tool helpful.

As always, best of luck!
